Not exactly the way I wanted to start the 2022 NFL season, as I went 2-3 on my top five picks last week. The Philadelphia Eagles choked away a 17-point fourth-quarter lead against the Detroit Lions, failing to cover by one point, the Carolina Panthers were hurt by two very controversial calls on what was the Cleveland Browns’ game-winning drive and then, I may have overestimated the Denver Broncos.
The only saving grace for me financially was that I hit a +1150 parlay that included Trey Lance throwing an interception, Mac Jones throwing an interception, Matt Ryan throwing an interception and Baltimore Ravens moneyline. Write it down, betting on interceptions in Week 1 appears to be lucrative.
It was a bloody first week for many bettors, but we have a chance to rebound in Week 2. Remember that while we learned some lessons in Week 1, it’s also easy to overreact in the second week of the regular season.
As always, credit to the CBS Sports research team for making me sound smart.
